Not happy about this!!  My mother never forgave him for Eight Belles and is convinced he caused her death.

Yep.  There may be a valid explanation but I think they’ll charge him.

Martin Garcia tests positive for coronavirus, no symptoms, will do 14 day quarantine. Riding so many tracks, who knows where he got it.

Indiana not allowing jocks from other tracks to ride, they would have to show negative COVID test and quarantine for 14 days. They seem to have waited until after the Indiana Derby and Oaks ran.......

I wouldn't be surprised to see 14 day quarantines required at a lot of other tracks around the country for jocks and others.

You know we could see racing shutdown for the near future if there are many more cases.
